Blue Mountain Theatre
Necessity is the mother of Invention! Blue Mountain Theatre was created in 1989 to redress the balance of the lamentable lack of theatre on offer to the average black theatre patron. The only theatre specifically aimed at a black audience was either South African and of an intensely political nature or Shakespearean text with black faces. These works were all heavily Art Council funded, with a view to attracting a black audience and inevitably played to near empty houses with not a black face in sight. We personally have sat through such performances where the audience numbered six people - until intermission and then it was none. (London SE6)
